    I'd say it's difficult to choose ONE, there are so many Great Strongmen, both now and throughout the ages.

    2 of my favorites were Bill Kazmaier and Magnus Ver Manusson (not sure about spelling of there last names).

    *edit*
    Found this on the web regarding Bill Kazmier:
    Best Lifts

    Please Note that He Did Not Use Bench Shirts or Squat Suits. Also, in the Squat, He Kept his Back Perpendicular to the Ground, Not like the Good Mornings that Pass as Squats




    Competition Squat: 925 pounds-wr

    Competition Bench: 661 pounds-wr

    Competition Deadlift: 887 pounds-wr

    Total in Competition: 2425 pounds-wr

    It was so funny. They introduced the challenger first, the announcer was like
    "In this corner, we have "insert name here", standing at 6'3" 230lbs" *Starts jumping around like a badass*
    Then introducing Mariusz, the announcer was like "in the other corner, standing at 6'1"m weighing 265lbs *Mariusz is sitting there looking all jacked staring at the guy, who stops and his face goes absolutely blank like holy sh!t...*

    Mariusz was the only guy that made me proud to be polish. He was the greatest strong man ever he won the title 5 times. Thats more than anyone ever did. Then he got into MMA...
    Stats: Bench- 315, Squat- 440, Deadlift- 530, 6'4", 215lbs
    Goals by end of year: Bench- 365, Squat- 500, Deadlift- 600, 6'4", 230lbs

    My favorite hands down is Mariusz, the energy he brings to the sports is just unlike anyone else. Not to mention being the only person to get world's strongest man 5 times. My second favorite is Louie Simmons from Westside Barbell.
    Current Lifts: Bench 325, Squat 390, Deadlift 465.
